    Great lume rules out Invicta, Croton, and most other Chinese made offerings.

    You can pick up a Citizen Promaster Eco-Drive for Under $150.

    Citizen Promaster BN0151-09L (Blue) or BN0150-28E (Black)

    Tauchmeister also makes quartz divers, as does Momentum, for $100-$150

    This Momentum Torpedo is only $73.63

    If great lume is in order, Seiko is worth mentioning.

    This one in particular is the SNE435 (PADI solar, 43.5mm x 50mm). The aforementioned Citizen is a bit less expensive, partly due to the rubber strap as opposed to a bracelet.

    Lume goes all night if that’s your thing!

    I got this one for...$220, I think. Someone else saw a sale price recently for under $200. Of course, that’s a small premium because of the “PADI” bit. I assume a normal one is more in line in price. They’re worth considering!

    Bulova Accutron II is a good option, and it gets you a higher accuracy movement... with a sweeping second hand!
